While it took them awhile, now the cardinals are frequent visitors…
I hear the quiet chirp of the missus at the first light though these photos are all of her mate.
This little bungalow was so full of family and friends on numerous occasions over the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Years that it is nice to have a space of quieter times here for awhile.
Time to take a book like this and peruse it….
Perhaps over here by Lily who is dozing in her usual place in the corner.
That is her usual afternoon spot. In the early mornings, pre-dawn, she and my other dog Jugsy can often be found sharing a rug between the dining room and living room.
There was a spectacular sunrise the other morning. Of course one of the neighbors was walking his dogs as I was outside in my pajamas on the porch taking pictures.
Back indoors, with Christmas cleared away, there is still a little red and green on the quilt rack.
On the piano, blooms from other seasons …roses, pussy willow and hydrangea….
While on one of the room dividers little crocuses grow.
In the dining room, some sewing, and of course the usual assistance from the cat.
And last but not least, there’s a box on the stairs waiting to go into my cupboard up in my bedroom..all of the 2013 bank statements and bills etc. sorted, filed and ready to put away. A fresh start in regards to paper, aside from waiting now for everything pertaining to taxes to start arriving.
